An idea struck me whilst I was making up the Antenocitis Billboards and adding the Dreadball poster in particular. What if there where street style Dreadball pitches, like you see in basketball and football in real life? Not something like used in Xtreme, but something used by the kids and adults alike of the cities and colonies. With that in mind I set out to try and figure out the best way to make something like that and discovered this on Antenocitis Workshop:
This would work really well to get the main shape onto a base. I had a couple of wooden backs from frames lying about, intended for basing some terrain, so cut one to the size I wanted, 3 x 2 cubes or 9″ x 6″. With that base size in place I had a limit to the size of the pitch and how much of the above to cut into shape and size, I wanted it a little smaller than the base so I could add a few extra bits around the edges, specifically some barriers and some strike posts. Using some of the Antenocitis barriers, a few bits of Deadzone terrain, metal tubing and a wee bit of guitar string, this is what I came up with…
It looks a little small when compared with the size of the figures, but I think any larger and it would take up way too much space on the board, and I think at the end of the day it does what it’s supposed to do- add a characterful piece of terrain to the board, something that makes it look like people did at one time or another live and play in the Deadzone 🙂
Now to get the blighter painted 😀

That is a cool idea. It’s looking pretty slick as well. I like the strike posts with the metal tubing. Those look sweet. 🙂
it would look good as a roof top arena if it had a mesh instead of the jersey barriers.
